Joker 2: Everything we know about the long-awaited sequel

Arthur Fleck is back.

Lovers of cinema, rejoice! Joker 2, best known as "Joker: Folie à Deux," has gotten its first trailer, and many fans are ecstatic for the upcoming film. Arthur Fleck has been cast away to prison after the events of the first movie, but it seems like he may have just met his perfect ally.

Here is everything we know about Joker 2, including the trailer, plot, cast, release date and more.

Joker 2 release date

Luckily, the new Joker movie has a release date. While it could change, the expected release date for the film is October 4, 2024.

The first Joker movie was released during the month of October back in 2019. This marks five years since the first movie hit theaters, heightening the anticipation that fans already are full of.

Hopefully, Joker: Folie à Deux is a worthy successor to the original, as the first Joker did numbers with critics and at the box office.


Warner Bros. dropped the first trailer for Joker 2 yesterday (April 9), giving moviegoers an official look at the upcoming film.

So what does this trailer exactly show? Let's break down what we know so far about the plot.


The movie takes place after the events of the first. Fleck had been thrown into Arkham Asylum due to murder, and is assumedly on high watch, considering the majority of the trailer just shows him walking around with guards.

Yet, there seems to be a secondary character that gets the spotlight. Harley Quinn, also a part of the same asylum, notices Fleck as he walks by a room she is rehearsing some sort of asylum-led chorus in, as we see in the trailer.

They both lock eyes, already submitting themselves to one another. We then see a series of shots showing the two up on a stage, performing like they are in a musical. We do know that there are musical elements within the film, but will this be for real? Or just in Fleck's imagination?

Still, there are shots of the two back in the streets of Gotham, hinting at the fact that they do escape and become loved by all the fans Fleck already had from the first movie. Chaos ensues, as Joker: Folie à Deux prepares fans for the flight of their lives.
